Local news crew now at the Cotton Bayou beach access.
between the first and second sandbars is a hell of a riptide at that place. even on calm days it will drag you down the beach. all the locals surf up and out along the pier and bail before you get in between the the bars. You have to stay out along the end of the pier there. Also there is rebar under the water from the old pier. I grew up there surfing as a kid and young adult. We named it schoolbus because we could see if the waves were breaking from the schoolbus.
